Hitching post and cobblestone search stretches into Hartland

HARTLAND – I headed home from Barker early this afternoon and took a different route, this time going south on Carmen Road, looking to connect with 104.
I stumbled upon a one-room schoolhouse made of cobblestones in 1845. The building was used as a school for more than a century until 1947. It was later a residence, but is now owned by the Hartland Historical Society.
I also noticed a nice cast-iron horse as a hitching post in front of the building.
This site is on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s at the corner of Carmen and Seaman roads.
